Subject[PATCH 3/3] bpf: use copy_struct_from_user() in bpf() syscall
Date
In v5.4-rc2 we added a new helper (cf. [1]) copy_struct_from_user().
This helper is intended for all codepaths that copy structs from
userspace that are versioned by size. The bpf() syscall does exactly
what copy_struct_from_user() is doing.
Note that copy_struct_from_user() is calling min() already. So
technically, the min_t() call could go. But the size is used further
below so leave it.
